I'm so grateful that you mamas don't get tired of helping choose seats <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> DS is 2 and is in a diplomat and DD 6 mo is in a graco bucket that is from '06 (our neighbors spare) We are currently in an '00 Grand cherokee w/o latch (hope to have a minivan at the end of summer) I was thinking we would pass the diplomat down to DD and get DS a new seat with a little more room. I have a babiesrus and target close by. Would like to keep it around $200. Thanks!<br>
Measurements:<br>
DS: 30 lbs 35"<br>
DD: 19lbs 27.5"

How tall is DS? I assume he is still rear-facing?

The Learning Curve TrueFit, Safety 1st Complete Air, or Sunshine Kids Radians would be worth looking at.

Unfortunately, Britax hasn't kept up with the competition - their forward facing harness slot heights are now one of the LOWEST on the market, so with the big price tag they just aren't worth it anymore.<br><br>
Once your DS outgrows RFacing, he may not have much time left to FFace in a Britax.

I love my evenflo triumph advance, despise my truefit premier (PITA to install/tighten when rf), and am OK with the complete air in DH's car (not that I've used it much though<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">. I liked the looks/feel of the radian xtsl I had for a few days, but it just wouldn't fit in my car (99 accord) - if it'll fit, I think a radian would be my #1 preffered choice<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Also, radians are still onsale on babycatalog.com so you should be able to get diapers.com to pricematch them, and then theres usuallly 10-15% off coupons floating around, so you can get them for a pretty decent price. Best part of diapers.com though, is they have free shipping *AND* free return shipping!! Good luck!!
